Does the institution compost or mulch waste from grounds keeping, including grass trimmings?:
A brief description of the composting or mulching program:
Western recycles and reuses 100% of the leaves on campus. Leaves on the forest edge are blown back into the wooded lots and leaves that are on the lawn and flower beds are collected and transferred to the university's leaf composting area on campus. Other materials, such as grass clippings, plant material, soil and turf from landscape installations are also added to the mix.
